Serves: 2
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • ½ tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted) or grape seed oil
  • ½ - 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 220C and line 1-2 large baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Clean sweet potatoes under running water with a potato or vegetable brush. Cut evenly into 1cm thick matchsticks and place into a large bnowl of water to soak for at least 1 hour.
  3. Drain and rinse, then pat dry with paper towel. Transfer to a large bowl and sprinkle thoroughly with tapioca starch, then toss thoroughly to coat all fries with a very thin and light coating. Add oil and seasonings and toss again to coat well.
  4. Alternatively, add fries and tapioca starch to a large plastic freezer or zip lock bag. Hold top of bag closed and shake fries until finely coated with starch. Transfer into large bowl and proceed to toss with oil and seasonings.
  5. Place fries in a single layer on prepared baking tray/s, making sure fries are well spaced for optimal baking. Bake for 15 minutes, turn fries and rotate trays backwards and forwards, as well as from highest to middle of oven. Bake for a further 15 minutes.
  6. Optional: After baking, turn oven off and leave door open ajar. Allow fries to cool on baking tray, inside oven for 10 minutes for an even crunchier result.
  7. Serve with condiments of choice and a sprinkling of course Celtic Sea Salt
